leaders are holding this vote in a desperate attempt to stop a civil war within the gop. the tea party and its corporate backers have declared open season on any gop lawmaker who supports another budget alternative. mitch mcconnell's plan to raise the debt limit, sending a warning letter to every republican in congress saying, quote -- we will refrain from backing any member of consequence who supports the mcconned/reid/pelosi run-and-hide plan. the few remains grownups in the gop know they have to raise the debt limit in order to avoid an economic disaster, but the new kids in the party are refusing to play along. joining me is republican congressman mo brooks from alabama, a tea party freshman, an original co-sponsor of the cut, cap and balance bill. congressman, this bill is being debated on the floor now. it would roll back spending to 1966 levels, i believe. it's so extreme that even the ryan budget would be unconstitutional, and it protects tax cuts for the rich and corporations. how is that a balanced approach, if your view? >> i respectfully disagree with your characterization

the gop's number one priority is to make sure obama is a one-term president. but i say, aim higher. make him a no-term president. let's build a time machine, go back to the 1970's, and convince young barack to go into dentistry! [laughter] he would have been good. i would have trusted him for that. [laughter] but on the slim chance that my time machine plan doesn't work, there may be another way to win. republicans have an edge in 2012, thanks to a new study out of the university of chicago which found that seeing an american flag can shift voters towards republicanism. before the 2008 election, researchers gave two groups with the same political beliefs questionnaires asking who they were going to vote for: obama or mccain. the questionnaires were identical except one group's form had a small american flag and the other did not. after the election, researchers found that those who saw the flag were less likely to have voted for obama. that means mccain could've won, if only he'd shown up to debates like this.

of just how fractured the gop has become, senate republican leader mitch mcconnell has proposed giving the president sweeping new powers to lift the debt limit absent of any congressional approval. administration officials and senate majority leader harry reid praised mr. mcconnell for showing a serious effort to avoid a default. >> he's spent a great deal of time working on this, senator mcconnell did. i commend him for his thoughtful and unique proposal. it's something that we have to look at very closely. i'm heartened by what i read. this is a serious proposal. >> of course, praise from democratic quarters means the proposal is most likely dead on arrival in the house. look no further than tea party republican jayson chafetz who tweeted don't know what in the world mcconnell in the senate is thinking. wow, stupid idea, and while conservatives assail the mcconnell plan has a panic button sellout, house speaker john boehner appears at a loss to figure out what will happen if the government can't make a deal. >> i don't know. >> stumped, is he? well, president obama has an idea of wha

republican debt limit in the house gop and this one moved the bill to the right. he absolutely catered to the tea party republicans, and how do i know this? i spoke to a few of them who said they went in and met with him yesterday, and floated this balanced budget amendment option aroundp 5:00 or 6:00 p.m. saying it is the only way to get to 216 votes. so that is the situation, and that plan will go nowhere in the united states senate, and as you heard chris van hollen say, they don't want a judicial branch to dictate the budget, and not to mention before a debt ceiling can be raised in the second go around, they have to go to the states, and the possibility of trying to see a balanced budget amendment go through state legislatures, and that could be further contingent on the debt ceiling increase has a lot of folks on the democratic side thinking it is unreasonable. >> luke, at this time yesterday, you and i thought that they probably had somewhere around the 216. do you think that they have those votes now? >> absolutely. >> you are confident? >> yes, 110%, they will get 216 tonight.

to pay bills. now, the house of representatives will be voting today on a gop plan created by house speaker john maynard. even though the plan is dead in the water, and his plan would cut spending by more than 900 billion over 10 years. it raises the debt ceiling for only about six more months before a second vote would need to be taken. over in the senate, democrats have said that they will not support the gop plan because it could mean another risk of a government defaults and force cuts to programs like medicare. president obama said he would veto the plan. democrats are supporting a senate plan brought by majority leader harry reid that would raise the debt ceiling to the end of 2012, past the presidential election. if a deal is not reached by august 2nd, the u.s. government will no longer be able to borrow money to pay bills. with that, americans could be seeing higher interest rates on loans, credit cards and mortgages. a declining u.s. dollar and a partial government shutdown. >> we are just getting this mass into the newsroom as a tropical storm don that will have the coast
